Convert Windows 7 roaming profiles to local profiles

    Question

  • I want to kill roaming profiles and switch everyone to a local profile while maintaining all the settings in the roaming profile in a local profile.  What's the best way to do that?  just do a "change type" on the local machine then remove the profile path from their AD account?

    Simply remove the path to the roaming profile. Thats it.
    There is always a sync local copy of the profile.

  • So all I have to do is kill the path in their AD account and then the next time they log in, they will have the same profile they had yesterday but it will now only exist locally on their machine?
